Two things that really bother me\don't make sense

    • Two things that really bother me\don't make sense

      1) I can understand the need to redesign On A Rail chapter, but why the
      hell was the end of the Surface Tension cut down? The use of Snark weapon in the garage, the introduction of those Xen jump pads and the big battle in the warehouse are just... gone?

      2) Did I missed the Snarks in Questionable Ethics? Because I only found them at the end of ST which made no sense what so ever, from a gameplay point. I get them just before the fight with Garg?? I dropped down from that vent with Snarks in my hand, saw Garg and felt like a complete idiot, man.:fffuuu:
      Snarks are a great weapon against human grunts and than again, they don't attack aliens. So why do I get them AFTER the whole Surface Tension? I have no use for them in Forget About Freeman and later. Completely useless.

      This mod is truly awesome, and more than just a mod, but these two things are really killing me! Is there any reason you did this? Was it intentional, or just overlooked?

      this isnt an exact copy of HL1, they must have had their reasons, I missed those parts as well, but they compensate them very well, for example in FAF, there is one part when you face a squad of marines and a tank in a open space and you can see a air Dogfight between xen Manthas and Harriers + the awesome soundtrack, I jizzed my pants when I saw that...
    • As was discussed in another thread, the devs had to cut out all of ST from the vent to the garb in because a team member quit and they couldn't finish it. The game does suffer from it; the lack of soldiers and aliens fighting really ruins the impression of the soldiers being beaten back.

    • Thanks for answering, too bad that particular map was left unfinished. It held fond memories. It really feels weird without it.
      As for snarks...
      you're lying! I searched the whole QE labs, they are NOT there! WHERE ARE THEY??!
      I tried to smash the snark cannon but it's not working! Please let me know where to find them, I love this weapon so much, thanks.

      Agreed. QE and Surface Tension were always my favorite part of the game. This rendition of ST is still great, but the cuts they made to it are felt pretty hard. Probably my biggest beef with the mod.

      And yes, snarks are pretty useless now.
    • Yeah when I fell out of the vent to see a Garg I was kinda sad. I really liked the huge battle in the warehouse and the outdoor fighting between the aliens and the marines.

      It sure did scare the piss out of me though when i saw that Garg. It's been a long time since any HL game has scared me a few times, and this did it quite a few times with surprises.

      Also the TOW launcher was bad ass, wish it was used more
